Key performance indicators for the chemicals strategy for sustainability: final report

Your substances


This study aimed to support DG GROW in the identification and recommendation of key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure the industrial transition towards the production of safe and sustainable chemicals. In 2020, the European Commission set out a sustainability roadmap for the EU chemical industry, demonstrating the intention to move towards a toxic-free environment and improve resource and energy efficiency, circularity, climate neutrality, and global competitiveness. This roadmap is communicated in the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) and relates to the broader EU sustainability agenda underpinned by the European Green Deal. A critical question for policy makers is how to monitor the progress towards these sustainability goals. In fact, the CSS commitment to develop KPIs to monitor the transition to safe and sustainable chemicals is the main driving force for this study. Monitoring progress through indicators is key to identify whether goals are being achieved and to determine how much and what type of further action is required to achieve the desired outcomes
